PS. Now, I remember that Darren Thomas made the AV1+s for you! No wonder your system looks so familiar. Darren is a great guy and a good friend. Very nice setup.Not quite AL. Although I've seen Darren's work in person and on Ellis Audio's web site, he didn't build those particular AV1+'s. Infact, they were built by Brian Bunge of Link Removed (fine gentleman) and they were finished by Rob Lloyd (My Bud)of this forum.
However, I can say that Darren's work is absolutely astonishing and his repuatation is growing quite rapidly on various forums around the net. He's built a pair of Adire Kit 281's for a client of mine and we both thought his work was top notch. I am having him build me some bass traps and I expect nothing short of the same wonderful quality that we've already seen from him.
Here's his link to anyone who may be curious.
Martice, what type of finish is that exactly? Is it a simulated wood grain laminate or is it oak painted black? I ask that because that is exactly the look I want for my AV12 enclosure. Love the black enclosure with the silver cone!It is pretty convincing isn't it. The finish is actually a simulated wood grain laminate. I like dark colors in the listening room so I knew that the sub had to be black although I had no idea that John of Stryke Audio was going to do such a nice job.
Also I noticed you said that your Behringer tube EQ was unhooked, are you utilizing the EQs in the Klipsch?No I wasn't using the Behringer for the EQ section as I by passed it totally and I don't use the EQ's in the Klipsch unit either. I used the Behringer for the tube stage it has with hopes to get a little of the tube feel with my solid state. I have since decided to go and get a Antique Sound Lab LH-01 remote controlled tube pre amp for 2-channel music listening.
For movies do you set the speakers to large and let the AV 1+ roll off at 60 hz or is the ICBM transparent enough that you don't hear any loss when it is inserted?Hi Greg,
I thought about setting the Av1+'s to large but opted to crossover the speakers at 60hz as in my HT link photo will show. I cannot hear the ICBM in anyway except for when I change the crossover settings. I can hear the differences in the AV1+'s sound when I turn the sub off and I switch the crossover settings on the ICBM. That's the only time that I can hear it's effect on my system. Which is the way I'm supposed to hear it.
